I trying to boot a linux compile with ltib, but when execute kernel, linux promt from iMx35 dont show...


I try next command to load kernel and root and then execute linux.


fis init

load -r -b 0x100000 zImage -h

fis create -f 0x100000 kernel

load -r -b 0x100000 rootfs.jffs2 -h

fis create -f 0x600000 root

fis load kernel

exec -c "noinitrd console=ttymxc0,115200 root=/dev/mtdblock8 nfsroot= init=/linuxrc ip="


where ip ip


Error message say:

VFS: Cannot open root device "mtdblock8"

Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions

1f00 512 mtdblock0 (driver?)


1f08 98304 mtdblock0 (driver?)

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs


Any idea what happend.


Thanks for all.
